In the only  contest, Emma Carrillo was elected director of publicity, eking out a win over Sicarra Devers with 102 votes (52% of the vote).

On the same ballot, Devers was successful in her quest to become a member of the ASGC Board of Directors, joining the elected students mentioned above. In addition, the Board of Directors will include Molly Ayala, Wayne Anthony Butler, Christopher Foskett, Kevin Garcia, James Mauschbaugh, and Perla Perez. To join the board, these students had to file their candidacy and receive at least one student vote.
